From Key Features to Benefits

KEY FEATURES

BENEFITS

Wind Farm/Turbine
Mitigation

The ASR-NG implements highly sophisticated algorithms to suppress false targets in


windfarm areas but more importantly ensures actual aircraft plots are not classified as
wind turbine reflections and permit tracking of even the smallest or slowest targets over
windfarms.
Reflections created by wind farms can also be an issue for an MSSR. The MSSR 2000 I
will operate in Mode S providing a significant mitigation to this issue compared to
standard SSR operation, as targets are only selectively interrogated. Mode S reflection
due to obstacles such as wind farms seldom if ever occur as the interrogation is only
transmitted into the direction of the target rather than all around.

BITE

Fault detection and isolation is provided down to LRU level.


Excessive diagnostic functions for failure localisation and performance monitoring.
BITE provides more than 1000 status indications in order to derive the health status of
each unit/subsystem/system and to support sophisticated redundancy management.

System Redundancy

High degree of redundancy to provide a maximum level of system availability.


Redundancy management scheme provides continued operation even in case of
multiple failures within the target channels
